Review

Sweet tobacco, dried red cherries, mint, new leather and spices all flesh out in the 2011 Zinfandel Lolita Ranch. Rich, layered and impeccable in its balance for such a big wine, the 2011 shows plenty of intensity all the way to the finish, which turns a bit ethereal. This is one of the more immediate, fruit-driven Zinfandels in the range. Black stone fruits, violets, leather and licorice all add complexity on the close.
